Senior Pastor

 Pastor Chuck Ellsworth

I am a Missouri native. My early years were spent in Kirksville before moving to Lake of the Ozarks and eventually to Kansas City, MO. 

I attended Central Bible College in Springfield, MO where I met the love of my life Susan Garner (I not only met her but married her). We have pastored churches in Arkansas and Missouri and started and currently pastor Real Life Assembly of God in Peculiar, MO. We have two grown children Jordan and Danielle and a Chinese Crested Powderpuff named Shadow.

In my spare time, I love to hunt, fish, travel and visit historical sites and museums. My perfect vacation would be a cabin in the Rocky Mountains enjoying nature and whitewater rafting. I do not get to enjoy my favorite vacation often because Susan's favorite vacation is sitting on the beach at Siesta Key Florida worrying about shark attacks (marriage is all about compromise).

My favorite music is gospel with soul, my favorite book is the Bible (go figure), my favorite verse is Philippians 1:6 and the singer I most admire is David Phelps (his voice is ridiculously high).

My bucket list includes: visiting all 50 states, visiting the Holy Land, the pyramids of Egypt, Rome, the Great Wall of China, Mount Everest (not climbing) and participating in as many foreign missions trips as possible.
